Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Chairman, Dangote Cement Plc, has restated his commitment to the economic empowerment of millions of Nigerians.
Dangote said this on Monday in Lagos during the presentation of gifts to winners in the ongoing Dangote Bag of Goodies National Consumer Promo.
The chairman, represented by Olakunle Alake, Group Managing Director, Dangote Industry Ltd., said that the promo would reward 21 million Nigerians with various gifts that would boost their source of livelihood.
According to him, the promo is to reward its valued customers for their unflinching support that has made Dangote Cement the first choice in building construction.
“The choice of gifts was carefully selected because of our desire to impact and change lives of winners,” he said.
Also, Mrs Funmi Sanni, Director of Marketing, Dangote Cement, said the promo was to reward consumers with life changing prizes in tandem with the company’s core values.
“Dangote Cement is touching lives in an amazing way. When we started, some people were sceptical that the gifts will be won by people connected to the company.
“But we have all come to see that ordinary Nigerians who were not expecting it have been beneficiaries of the star prize of cars,” she said.
Sanni said that the company had presented 21 cars out of the 43 cars to be won to winners, adding that more people still stand the chance of being rewarded with the remaining cars.
She disclosed that though the promo would end on Sept. 30, redemption of prizes across the country had been extended beyond the period.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 27 people were rewarded with various gifts ranging from car, motorcycle, tricycle,
refrigerator and television set.
Mr Titus Jegede, a construction engineer who won a car, said that he was amazed at the gift, saying that it would be used to promote his company.
Some other winners were: Monday Ajose, who won a motorcycle and refrigerator; Sunday Abel, a tricycle; Aremu Kunle, a refrigerator, and Mr Wale Jinadu, a television set.
